Fabinho may have revealed Saudi Pro League transfer stance when Roberto Firmino left Liverpool

Fabinho may have revealed Saudi Pro League transfer stance when Roberto Firmino left Liverpool

He has a decision to make.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp must decide whether to part ways with another two senior players this summer amid reported interest from Saudi Arabia.

Klopp has already allowed Roberto Firmino, James Milner, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to leave the club at the end of their contracts - and has so far only brought in Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai as their replacements.

Two of his most experienced players, club captain Jordan Henderson and fellow midfielder Fabinho, are also being linked with moves away this summer.

On Thursday, it emerged that both players are targets of Saudi Pro League clubs.

Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is keen to sign Henderson for Al Ettifaq, while Al Ittihad are believed to be readying a £40m bid for Fabinho.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano claims Henderson, 33, is ready to move to Saudi Arabia, where he could reportedly quadruple his salary to £700,000 per week.

It is less clear if Fabinho will seek to leave Anfield this summer, with the 29-year-old under contract with Liverpool until 2026.

But the Brazilian may have already given a hint over whether he would like to move to Saudi Arabia.

Fabinho's 'hint' over Saudi move

After it emerged earlier this year that his compatriot Firmino would leave Liverpool at the end of June rather than signing a new deal, Fabinho expressed his surprise at the decision – believing he could still play at the highest level at the age of 31.

"We were always asking Bobby - 'When do you sign your new contract? Come on we want you to stay here with us'," he told Sky Sports. "We didn't really expect him to go."

"Bobby is still only 31-years-old so he has a lot to do. He can still play his best football at that age, he's young. So yes, we didn't really expect this decision to be made but (we accept) he has to go.

“Sometimes we saw he was not happy (this season) because of dangers as well. He's somebody that usually does not get injured but he's has a bit of trouble with the injuries."

Fabinho is two years younger than Firmino and may feel like it is too soon for him to move away from European football.

But given he has already won every major honour with Liverpool, and faces increased competition for places following the signings of Mac Allister and Szoboszlai, Fabinho may well accept a lucrative contract offer in Saudi Arabia.
